One in 100 seniors in America are affected by Parkinson’s disease, with more than 60 thousand diagnosed every year in the U.S. When caring for a loved one who has Parkinson’s disease, we know it becomes increasingly difficult to provide the needed specialized care as the disease advances. While individuals experience Parkinson’s differently, we strive for improved quality of life for all residents at Silver Creek – maximizing physical wellness, promoting independence and enhancing emotional well-being.
Support in St. Augustine for Those With Parkinson’s Disease
Though no case of Parkinson’s disease looks exactly alike, it commonly causes or exacerbates other health conditions, including: cognitive and psychological changes, movement and mobility issues, heightened risk of fall, sleep abnormalities, difficulty swallowing, weight loss and difficulty communicating. Since those diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease may have trouble walking, talking or handling daily tasks requiring movement, Parkinson’s care at Silver Creek reduces the day-to-day stress of these symptoms by providing heightened safety measures, 24-hour nursing support and accessible activities.
Our therapies and programs are tailored to the neurological difficulties your loved one may be experiencing. With both individualized support based on each person’s needs, abilities and preferences, as well as interactive opportunities to promote interaction and socialization, Parkinson’s care at Silver Creek is centered around helping residents make the most of their experiences and cognitive abilities.
An Uplifting, Homelike Environment
Although the medical community has yet to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease, we believe daily life can be improved even as the disease progresses through specialized, person-centered Parkinson’s care. We’re committed to surpassing your expectations at Silver Creek – where your loved ones can continue to experience comfort, warmth and fulfillment all within an uplifting, homelike environment.
